Damontre Harris injury: Gators center suffers torn labrum

Kevin C. Cox

The Florida Gators center suffered the injury during practice and may need surgery.

Florida Gators center Damontre Harris suffered a dislocated shoulder and torn labrum in practice, and now he is considering surgery, which would keep him out of action until March. Harris, who transferred to Florida from South Carolina during the offseason, cannot play for the Gators this season because of the NCAA's transfer rules.

According to head coach Billy Donovan, the Gators are worried that if if Harris does not have surgery, the shoulder could be a recurring problem. "The concern is if he doesn't have surgery, the likelihood of (the shoulder) popping out again is pretty high," Donovan said.

Harris played for two seasons at South Carolina, and as a sophomore in 2011-12, he averaged 6.8 points and 5.5 rebounds per game. He made 55 percent of his two-point attempts and 80 percent of his free throw attempts.

Harris transferred to Florida after the Gamecocks parted ways with head coach Darrin Horn. South Carolina was 10-21 last season.
